A Florida man was strolling on the beach this morning when a giant Lego man washed ashore. So yeah, that happened. The 8-foot-tall toy, who goes by the name Ego Leonard, has been doing a lot of traveling lately as he’s washed up on beaches in Holland and England as well. The message on his shirt says “No real than you are.” According to Ego’s website (yes, he has a website), he “comes from the virtual world,” which represents “happiness, solidarity, all green and blossoming, with no rules or limitations.” Clearly, he has lessons to teach us, but it appears that English is his second language. Perhaps he should take grammar lessons from Courtney Stodden. [Boing Boing]
Not every celeb must reach public infamy like Lindsay Lohan or Charlie Sheen to seek help for addiction. We knew him as the funny guy who did an amazing Bill Clinton impersonation on “Saturday Night Live,” but behind the scenes, things weren’t so funny for Darrell Hammond. According to his new memoir, God, If You’re Not Up There , I’m F**ked, a traumatic childhood led him to drink, do drugs, and cut himself. Click on to hear more of Darrell’s shocking revelations and see other celebs who we never even knew were addicts until they told us.
A 21-year-old California man made a $100 wager with his friends that he could fit in a kiddie swing at a local playground. Oh, what a man won’t do
to impress his friends to stay young forever. After slathering himself with laundry detergent and maneuvering his legs in the tiny swing holes, the man was unable to free himself. So what did his really cool friends do? Oh,they left him there to swing alone, all night long. Nine hours later, he was discovered by the park’s groundskeeper, crying like a baby, his legs swollen from lack of circulation. He was so thoroughly stuck in the swing that firefighters had to cut the chains and take him to the hospital still in the diaper-like apparatus. It can be hard to accept that childhood is over.

It takes an interesting type of person to agree to sign on for a reality TV show. Some are kooky, others ambitious, most fame hungry, and a few, well … just plain shady. Last season on Bravo’s “Top Chef: Just Desserts,” it was easy to see that runner-up Morgan Wilson was a total egomaniac, but I never would have guessed he was into hardcore kiddie porn. Click through for more about Morgan’s crime and check out some other Reality Stars with checkered pasts. Where do producers find these people?
Artist, Christine Chin created this line of kitchenware entitled Sentient Kitchen. “While it is the nature of the human ego to cast suspicion on a challenge to human intellect, Sentient Kitchen products offer a non-threatening environment to explore the benefits of smarter, more sensitive solutions to our daily dining needs,” says Chin in her project statement. Hmmm. My ego is still telling me not to sip tea out of a hairy ear. [Buzzfeed]
